SolarDerm: Our Story
Hi, my name is Laura Mulcahy and I’m the founder of SolarDerm.
In 2016, I retired after 30 years in corporate America. I was ready for a change and starting SolarDerm was just the change I was looking for.
My husband had been involved in the green tea business since the late 90s. In 2010, he developed a green tea skin care line with a top cosmetic engineer. But at that time, he felt he didn’t have the right team in place to launch the products successfully, so he put everything on hold.
My family, friends and I started using the products he developed. We loved them so much that we used them all up. I couldn’t find anything on the market that was remotely close in quality or effectiveness to his products, so I decided to launch the products myself.
Working with the same cosmetic engineer, we improved on the formula, produced more and launched SolarDerm in 2019.
Meanwhile, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I didn’t like the lotion that the doctors recommended I use on my skin after radiation. It was thick, greasy, and hard to put on. But most importantly, it did nothing to heal my burned skin.
Radiation burns are very similar to sun burns, so I checked with my doctor to make sure it was okay and started applying SolarDerm moisturizer instead. The moisturizer calmed my skin, helped stop the peeling, and best of all, helped to actually heal my skin. The rest of my radiation treatments became much more bearable now.
My mother also used SolarDerm on her forearms after her treatments. It immediately relieved the itchiness and soothed her skin.
We have a facial moisturizer and a facial wash with more products to come. Our products are made with natural/non-toxic ingredients and are priced very reasonable compared to other high end antioxidant skin care lines.
Thank you for choosing SolarDerm. We hope you love them as much as we do!
